I Love Aspen Layout

Aspen, Colorado is such a beautiful place to visit.  While we were there we spent some time at the John Denver Sanctuary.  The photos from the trip were perfect for the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  

This collection has a few embellishments with it, but for the most part, I fussy cut a lot for a lot of my embellishments on tis page.  It really brought the page to life, in my opinion and this layout is one of my favorites.  

Everything you see on this page from the tree, dear head, hearts, owl, leaves, all fussy cut from the Journal Cards in the Albums Made Easy Card Set.  I added some Stickles, glossy accents and twine to the mix as well.  

I inked the edges on EVERYTHING!  Between the cutouts, the inking and the added shine, this layout came out with some great dimension and character.

Have a fabulous day!

I'm So Lucky Layout

There are several things I really like about the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  One is the great variety of cards in the Albums Made Easy set, and the cork stickers.  Both of which I've used in this layout.

Although there isn't a lot of embellishments included with this collection, it is very easy to add your own.  I fussy cut the buck so that it stands out against the background paper.  I also added twine and stickles to the banner and flower graphics on the paper.

I love how this collection compliments the photos and has become one of my new favorites from We R Memory Keepers.  Visit to check out all of the Shine Collection.

Have a fabulous day!

Every Day Blessing Layout

Hey there!  I have got to share one of my new faves, cork stickers!  My absolute favorite embellishments in the We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.  I mean just look at how cute that owl is!

The design of this layout all revolved around wanting to use that cute little owl.  I love the colors in all of the elements and really wanted them to stand out so I put them on a black card stock background.

To make the photos pop, I matted them with white card stock.  This was the perfect layout for the clear stickers from this collection, giving them an opportunity to stand out.

The "Every Day is a Blessing" sentiment is a card from the Albums Made Easy Set, that I embellished with Platinum color Stickles.

Have a fabulous day!

Best Day Ever Card

Who knew that the Albums Made Easy Card set would be perfect for making a card.  It's the latest FotoBella bundle, We R Memory Keepers Shine Collection.

I placed three journal cards on the base of the cards, inked, embellished with Stickles and star cork stickers.  

This is a quick and easy card, fun and vibrant and can used for many different occasions.

Let's Get Out & Explore Altered Frame

I had oodles of ideas when it came to designing with Prima Marketing's Forever Green collection for FotoBella's design team.  One project I couldn't wait to get started on was this altered frame.  

I chose a basic black 4 x 6 frame.  I chose the journal card "let's get out there" and placed it inside the frame.  I covered the front of the frame with the patterned paper and then went to town with the embellishments.  

The assortment of flowers in this collection is simply amazing.  The stick pins were a gorgeous addition as well, adding great dimension and interest to the overall design.

Layers of flowers, paper and wood embellishments really created such a beautiful look to this project.  Hope you felt inspired to create a fun frame!

Altered wine decor

Hello!  I have a really fun project for you today and a great way to get a head start on making Christmas gifts.  Ugh! Yes, I said it....Christmas...and we haven't even got to Halloween yet, crazy, I know!  When I think of Prima Marketing products, altered projects immediately come to mind for me.  The Prima Forever Green I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella has so many fun embellishments that lend itself to such great creativity.  

I found a basic black wine cork holder at Big Lots and went away to work on it with the Forever Green Prima bundle.  There was a blank area at the front that allowed me to place the "it's the little things" title in the center of the piece.  

The flowers, stick pin embellishments and rhinestone gems are simply beautiful!

I tied some raffia at the bottom with a flower to add the finishing touch.

This will make such a great Christmas gift this year for a wine enthusiast.  Who doesn't love something fun and decorative for collecting corks?  Visit to get your Prima Forever Green bundle and get started on a fun altered project of your own.

Just Wanted To Say...

The Prima Forever Green collection at FotoBella offers some great options for card designs, and masculine is one of them.    

I chose the "you're my everything" sentiment, matted it in white card stock and popped it up from the back ground so that I could place some fun raffia behind it.  I fussy cut some ferns a tucked those behind the sentiment as well.  I could't resist adding a little bit of bling, so I added two rhinestone gems on either side, mixed in with the raffia.  It was just the right touch.

Simple yet beautiful and a great card for the man in your life.
